2003 AIA Seattle Honor Awards

In the 52nd annual AIA Seattle Honor Awards program, a panel reviewed some 150 entries from Washington design professionals and handed out seven awards. The winners were announced at a Nov. 10 banquet in Seattle.

The jury included architect Shigeru Ban of Tokyo; architect Brigitte Shim, Shim-Sutcliffe, of Toronto; and novelist Matthew Stadler of Nest Magazine.

“The jury finds one project of exceptional merit, and a broad variety of projects that raise important issues for architects working today,” Stadler said about the top project, a home in Seattle’s Fauntleroy neighborhood.

The Fauntleroy project won the Honor Award while the other six received Citation Awards.

According to Honor Awards Committee Chair Anne Schopf, the program sought to assemble both recent work and the thought that guides the current and future shape of our communities: “The theme ‘idea realized’ selected by the committee addresses the importance of idea in both built and unbuilt work.”

“Idea tiles” representing all entries are available for public viewing at AIA Seattle Gallery through November and on the AIA Seattle Web site (www.aiaseattle.org) indefinitely.
